helped to explain why the obama campaign harshly criticized romney's speech today before he even delivered it saying that he failed the commander-in-chief test. it's part of an aggressive new approach to try to stem the damage from the president's debate performance. with the president in california for a mix of official business and fund-raisers the white house fired back at romney's claims that the president was weak on syria and iran. they said romney did not propose any steps today that president obama hadn't taken already. >> that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: they pointed out romney's embrace of a middle east peace plan for two separate states with israel and palestine was at odds with what he told donors in that secretly taped florida fund-raiser. >> reporter: obama campaign officials described romney's speech as an attempt at a foreign policy reboot after embarrassing missteps overseas this summer. they pointed to his visit to london where he questioned the u.k.'s olympic readiness and his visit

, jan? >> reporter: scott, until today y e of the most reliable lines in romney's campaign speeches was that under president obama the economy -- the unemployment, that is, had not gone below 8%. low today he's saying that even though there's been this slight decline, this economy is nowhere near where it should be or where it could be if he were president. >> looks like unemployment's getting better. but the truth is, if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> reporter: romney is basing that on the people actually in the work force. although some economists say the rate would be closer to 9% because much of the decline in the population is due to aging of the population. romney says the current employment situation shows the president's policies aren't working and that he knows how to create jobs. in an effort to sway independent and undecided voters, romney is making a direct appeal to the middle-class. >> even th

with governor romney. that he wants to have a substantive conversation. they think that benefits him. they say he looks at this debate sort of the same way he looked at his convention speech a few weeks ago as a way to reach a much larger audience of americans who are going to be tuning in and want to hear more about his plan specifically when it comes to the middle-class. so because so much of tonight's debate is going to be about the economy, they say we can expect a very frank assessment from him about where the economy was when he took office and what he's done to improve it. >> pelley: nancy, you mentioned the large audience. it's estimated more than 50 million americans will watch tonight. our chief political spore respondent jan crawford is traveling with the romney campaign. jan, same question to you: what does the governor have to do? >> reporter: scott, romney had one final meeting with his advisors and they're telling me he sees tonight as his chance to show the american people they have a choice and to talk specifically about how his proposals will make their lives better
